Escondido is one of the oldest cities in San Diego County, and has a population of about 130,000 people. Its name means ‘hidden' and it lies in a shallow valley surrounded by rocky ridges. Once a rich agricultural valley, the land has given way to upscale development, and the area is considered some of the prime real estate in Southern California. Know, when searching for your Escondido apartment, that if you live in the central area near the medical center, the area is very walkable, but as with most Southern California cities, it is highly car-centric for all around transportation.
Lakes, Lakes and Lakes
Speaking of the downtown area, it is highly revitalized and the real center of all the action. There's a great museum, civic center and arts center along with a high concentration of shops and restaurants. There's a wild animal park which is a sister facility to the world famous San Diego Zoo, and you'll also find the three large lakes in Escondido will provide numerous opportunities for all sorts of recreational pursuits.And with San Diego a mere thirty miles away, you'll have the best of both small town and big city lifestyles.
Your Escondido apartment will no doubt be near any number of good restaurants as fine ones are very easy to find, but there are a few you might want to try while getting settled. Delight of France is a fine place to have breakfast or lunch. It's actually some of the best French bistro cuisine anywhere and has very reasonable prices. It's a store front with easy parking and shouldn't be missed. Filippi's, which is just down the block, is a four star pizzeria too. For Mexican food, don't miss Lourdes which provides great cuisine especially their desserts. Escondido has a variety of ethnic cuisines as well as seafood places so you'll end up finding whatever you want.
Casinos or Beer
At night, you've got choices of casinos in Valley Center. These hotel casinos now can compete with Vegas for big acts and entertainment. On a smaller scale, R.O'Sullivan's or Smokey's Lake are both great smaller bars with some live entertainment and a wealth of friendly people. You'll want a local watering hole once in your Escondido apartment, of course, but these are good starters. Also, the Stone Brewing World Bistro is a good venue for beer lovers and sitting by an outdoor fire place.
